State Fair Winners

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any projects so I thought I’d post a couple that I’m kind of proud of. The first is a bias bowl turned from plywood. The blank was about 4.5” square that I glued up from scrap baltic birch. It was turned mostly with EWT’s as the plywood dulled my Thompson bowl gouge very quickly. It is finished with gloss deft spray laquer.This one won me a blue ribbon at the Oklahoma State Fair last September. The second is a bowl that won second place. It’s turned from a piece of spalted hackberry. This one is finished with Mylands friction polish.

I remember seeing these bowls just this past year. I really liked the plywood bowls. I told my wife, that looks like a turning tool duller. But they came out gorgeous. Great work!
